Make ‘racist’ Lehava illegal, says MK

Lehava is a racist group and violent group that must be outlawed, MK Ksenia Svetlova (Zionist Union) wrote in a letter to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein Tuesday.

The organization’s name is an acronym for “preventing assimilation in the Holy Land,” and Lehava pursues that agenda mostly through protesting intermarriage, but it demonstrated against last week’s LGBT Pride Parade in Jerusalem, at which six people were stabbed, and several of its members have been indicted for allegedly setting an integrated Jewish-Arab Jerusalem school and others were arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.
